The Cadbury 5 and their supporters swept to victory in elections to the executive of the independent union at Mondelez in Alexandria, Egypt held on August 29.

The 5, who were dismissed in 2012 but reinstated under the terms of the IUF/Mondelez agreement which put an end to the two-year conflict, were overwhelmingly re-elected as the principal officers of the union. Together with their supporters on the executive, defenders of independent trade unionism fill all 9 leadership positions.

One-hundred-sixty members attended the union meeting where the elections took place, including 48 members from the other Mondelez Alexandria factory in Borg El-Arab. Three of the elected executive members work at this factory, where membership continues to grow.

The IUF has congratulated the union on securing the union at both plants.
